Republic Day


This generation of a different kind
Wasted youths with low and fickle mind
Its time for a Rev0luti0n! !
until there is Satisfaction

We are all just Hypocrites,
Under the rule of Masochists! !

We are wrapped in a blanket of lies
anything you want has its own price $$$
We are all just Hypocrites,
Under the rule os Masochists! !

Blindfolded we walk to our GRAVE
Peace and Insanity is what we Crave
REBELS of today,
Legends of tomorow
Revolutionize or live with sorrow.

When the going gets tough
the tough gets boring
Dictators of our lives
that permit the use of guns and knives.

Diplomatic bullshit leading to dipsomania
look around this new kind of mania
We are all just Hypocrites,
Under the rule of Masochists! !

Political priests preaching violence
unknown heroes left in silence
Feeding jargon promises to win us over and so they won
Fools we have been to keep noding in unison

Its now or never, do or die
its better to fight than to cry
stand up for your right dont give up this fight
fight for what you believe!

    I always love to hear anti-war pieces. I only wish I knew how the song actually goes. The amount of sincerity and emotion you put into this really proves your strength of character. Bravo. (Report) Reply

    Hey Anoop, I was perusing your poetry, and I came across this. I particularly like this one, because it's very true. It's wonderful how you envoke so much emotion to rise up for yourself, and not just go with the herd thinking everything will be alright. Good job.

poet George Gordon Byron

I Speak Not, I Trace...
by George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
